September Morning, #2

Assisted by a lady... start of a plein
air painting of a barn in Limestone county

can you see the ladybug (middle top of the painting) who flew in to say hello? You might have to click on the image to get it to enlarge.

Barns have a visual "draw" that I can't explain - could it be red against green like Christmas???

Without the ladybug, this one is 6x12, oil on cradled panel. Click on the image to see the thick and thin paint.  I wonder why the doors are closed, and the side roof fell off.   The cows even avoid it!
Matthews barn, Limestone county, Alabama
